Dear Governor, Hundreds of thousands of records of prohibited purchasers are missing from the background check system, putting American lives at risk.

Dear Governor, Hundreds of thousands of records of prohibited purchasers are missing from the background check system, putting American lives at risk. I urge you to make it a top priority to pass common sense gun legislation to ensure that guns are kept out of dangerous hands. I’m concerned that our state has failed to submit the records of seriously mentally ill people who are prohibited from buying guns to the national do-not-buy database. Our leaders should act immediately to pass a law that requires these records be sent to the background check system, because every missing record is another tragedy waiting to happen. Sincerely, [Name]
